Softball leaders hard to beat
THEY say catches win matches but that wasn’t the case for Aztecs Apaches in the Maryborough Softball Association senior women’s competition on Saturday.
Aztecs Apaches took more catches in the clash with the competition leaders, Incas Cobalt, but it wasn’t enough to win the game – far from it.
Incas Cobalt won the game 17-0.
Despite the big scoreline, not one home run was hit but Sarah James took a catch for Incas Cobalt while Kacci Sten and Caroline Bowyer starred with their gloves for last year’s losing grand finalists.
In the other game of the round, Shaun Mitchell hammered a home run, the only one of the game, to help Aztecs Arrows beat Incas Silver 9-5.
Zac Thatcher and Chloe Armstrong also gloved catches for Aztecs Arrows while Aaron Clifford, Katie Thorburn and Tayla Barron did the same for Incas Silver.
